My Personal Room 101

I've been tagged by Tami from Mummy Of Two to take part in the Room 101 meme.

My list could be extensive right now. It'd be all too easy to include the fact that Meningitis AND a broken leg are a bit too much for one family in such a short space of time, and that I broke my leg on the way home from the only 4 days away that we managed this whole Summer, but they're 'here and now' complaints which won't seem so bad this time next year.

1. People who park at the entrance to a school.
You selfish people. I've had babies, I know it's a pain to carry them any distance, but I did it. I've got a broken leg, but I still wouldn't think it was appropriate to pull up opposite the entrance and just abandon my car so that 8, 9 and 10 year olds can't see to cross safely, and I sure as heck wouldn't park all over the pavement so that people coming out of school have no choice but to battle along the road instead of the pavement. Whatever happened to walking? Why not walk the last 1/4 mile at least? Park up safely, you don't need to be able to fall out of your door and straight into the school you imbeciles. One day it'll be your child walking alone, and you'll want to know they aren't going to be mown down by someone who simply has to be at home by 3.35pm or else presumably they turn into a pumpkin.


2.Andrew Wakefield.
I have more to say about this than works for a meme, so I've created a post especially - Andrew Wakefield and the MMR. I hate to give him more pagetime, but to me at least this man deserves Room 101 and as he's discredited the world over and can't work in half of the1st world countries, I think he's probably there... 


3. Melted Cheese. I can't stand it. I'll try really hard, but I can rarely eat anything hot with more than a hint of cheese. As a vegetarian this can make eating at friends' houses a little tricky....


I'm tagging Tina from The Soup Dragon Says, Kelly from Writings, Ramblings And Reviews, and Anna from In The Playroom to take part in this meme.....

  3. Why thank you for choosing me! I agree on number 1 as it will save me having to put those car parking idiots in there. Number 2 yes I can agree on that, but you are so wrong with melted cheese, especially when it goes all crispy YUMMY!

  4. And I thought my best friend was the only 'melted cheese hater' in the world! Can't join you on that one, totally agree with the parking issue. Our school is next door to our local Tesco - it is an absolute nightmare in the morning. When I was a kid we walked for nearly half hour to get to school and back, no one drove to school, sad state of affairs.

    1. My poor kids are taking 25 minutes to get home at the moment because of me hobbling with my crutches - they're not very patient!
      I like your best friend already :)

    1. It's horrid!!
      I really think schools should be able to have double yellows and CCTV and they should all get tickets and fines. Or shot. One of those.

  6. I nodded vigorously to the first two, but then I hit the third....MELTED CHEESE?? Some of my fondest memories are of overindulgence and fondues. Yum.

  7. I hate those inconsiderate and darn right stupid parents that park or just stop where they shouldn't!!! Some people, honestly, they are so lazy! I hate cheese in general. The only cheese I like is parmasean on my pasta and mozarella on my pizza.

    1. At last! Someone who doesn't like cheese! Hurrah! :D

  8. Your first one is almost exactly what I put into my Room 101.
    Honestly. I'd put people who double park ANYWHERE. Because they're too lazy to park in a proper space and walk an extra 100 yards to their destination. And then they complain they're gaining weight! Makes me fume.
    Apart from the safety issues, what are they teaching their kids? That's it's OK to endanger others for your own convenience. Outrageous.

    1. I'm so with you, it makes me really mad. It's at the very least a real inconvenience and at most just lethal.

  9. LOL I will never ever forget that you do not like melted cheese ever again :P x

  10. You broke your leg??? Sheesh it's not been your summer has it? Sorry to hear that. And I'm totally with you on the parking outside school thing - selfish.
